The Environment and Humanitarian Action (EHA) Network is an informal network of like-minded practitioners, established in April 2013, and joined by the common goal to maximize the outcomes of humanitarian action. It aims to avoid, minimize, or mitigate environmental impacts of humanitarian action and to promote environmentally responsible humanitarian programming through collaboration and cooperation. It jointly identifies key issues involved in integrating environmental considerations and prioritizes joint actions for advocacy and capacity building. The network is coordinated by the UN Environment/OCHA Joint Unit (JEU) and holds bi-monthly teleconferences and one annual face-to-face meeting through which it shares progress and challenges and prepares actions to better integrate environment.  Its particular strength is its unique composition consisting of members from both environment and humanitarian communities as well as donors.
